Neymar linked with sensational £200m move

Neymar scored 19 league goals and set up another 13 in only 20 games for French champion PSG. Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, the other nominee, finished fourth in Sunday's Ligue 1 awards ceremony in Paris.

N'Golo Kante, who played for Premier League side Chelsea, was another one to defend his glory, beating the likes of Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and Samuel Umtiti to bag the Best French Player Playing Abroad award.

"I think every important player wants to play at Real Madrid, they all want to come and play here, that's inevitable", he told a post-match news conference.

The 26 year-old player has a contract with PSG for another four years and at the moment he is focusing on his return from injury ahead of the World Cup. Earlier in the week reports in France said Neymar's father has tasked super-agent Pini Zahavi with sealing the Brazilian's transfer to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian sent shockwaves through the football world when he agreed to join PSG after the Ligue 1 giants activated his £200million release clause at Barcelona. Otherwise, I would spend my whole life talking about it.

He also stressed that he's not thinking about the future as his focused on the upcoming World Cup with Brazil.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said on Saturday he was "2000 per cent" sure that the former Santos forward would be at the club next season, but speculation continues to grow. "I'm honored and very happy with our season". Mbappe, who has scored 13 league goals, won the same award past year when he helped Monaco to the title, and so follows Eden Hazard in claiming the young player gong two seasons running.

PSG swept the boards at the end of season UNFP awards in France on Sunday evening, with the Parisians coming away with three major awards.
